This rope can be used for anything from single-pitch sport cragging, to long days on a big wall. The diameter of the rope makes it heavier, but the safety reserves in terms of falls and cutting are increased. The dry treatment of the rope makes it appropriate for ice and alpine climbing, and mountaineering. Weight-conscious alpinists, sport climbers, or climbers stringing pitches together may wish to choose a lighter rope. The Edelrid hand leans towards a softer, suppler sheath feeling with a neutral balance between stretch and impact force.
And this model is 90 degree edge test, certified.

UIAA test fall rating of 11.
Rated to an impact force of 9.4kN.
Weight of 70g/m.
Stretch of 7.5 percent.
Available in a 60-metre length.

Great rope and price. Very tight woven, awsome feel while clipping, belaying and rapping.. One of the only 90 degree edge tested ropes, which is good because there is bad rope drag at the local spots, plus dry treated.

This is one of the best ropes you can find for alpine climbing in mixed conditions because it is dry and edge-tested. The edge-proof testing will be really important on those challenging ridge traverses. It is a bit on the heavier side, but it is a small price to pay for your safety. I was shopping between this one and Edelweiss Stratus. Stratus is also an excellent rope but it costs slightly more.
